Many the RK 1.5 inch lift. That's the only lift I think will bet you that amount.

I got almost exactly 2" from my 18/59 swap. Will probably be right at 2" when it settles.

Nothing, i already had 0-2" jks quick discos, 0-2" rancho 7000 mts, and teraflex rear track bar bracket. Took my old 13/55 springs and 1 3/4" spacers out, and put 18/59's in. done.

The only way to be guaranteed that you get a specific amount of lift is with spacers. Most coil lift kits provide slightly more lift than advertised because there are so many variables and manufactures probably want to deliver at least what's advertised.

Yea on a 2 door, RK's 1.5's yield 2.5"

What's your honest opinion on rancho kjeeper10. I do a little rock crawling about 4 times a year at ORV superlift in hot spring Arkansas and looking to run 34 inch tires and gain a little more flex and tackle some diamond 3 trails maybe more.

You looking to run a more complete kit ?

I have no experience with their coils. I know a few Guys around on the forums that run a Rancho lift. I don't see any complaints. The kits were selling like crazy last year during the rebate. Search Rancho and Track down one of the threads. get some currant feedback.

The 9000 shocks sell like crazy. The 7000's are more of a performance shock similar to the Billstein 5100. Run both and have no complaints.
Well one .. They tend to rust in certain environments. Next set I would paint and clear coat before install.

I looking to go around 2 inches and want to do it right the first time...are read that stock lca's will work with 2 inches then I hear that you need to change. If I have to piece a lift I will. I hear getting the strongest stock springs will lift a inch or more which I do not know mine yet but will find out this weekend. I would like to not spend more than around 1500 on what all I need for a proper lift. Some many options out there. Appreciate any advice.

With a 2 door. RK's new 1.5" will yield 2.5"
Add a set of front lower control arms for caster and a rear axle side track bad bracket. Extend the brake lines and bumpstops. Lastly add shocks. You should be able to run a front adjustable track bar for axle center and still be under budget.

If you go with a shock that's under 26" you should be ok .. If you want to do that.
What year and auto/man ?

Ok kjeeper, you seem to be the authority I look to on here as I am researching adding a lift. The shop I have been going to keeps telling me all of these other things I need to add when adding a 2" lift. I am fairly sure I am going to do the rancho lift. but what else would you say is necessary.

If you're doing the Rancho 2", install and enjoy. Nothing else is necessary.

With A 2.5" coil lift, depending on height you might need caster correction. That's about it. Obviously there's mods to make things better but not necessarily needed,

When you get up to 3.5-4" things get dicey, and you need a more complete lift.

I think you should be OK. Drive it for awhile, then decide if you want to regear.

Ok I've bought a set of 18/60 springs and the shocks from eBay for $225( hope that was a fair price) of a 2014 jkur and it's going on my 2 door sahara and thinking about the AEV 2" bb to go with that and I'm wondering if track bars need replaced or is there a more complete bb kit that I'm not seeing. Any opinions.

If you do that make sure your prepared to purchase everything for a 3.5"+ lift. When i first picked up my jeep my mechanic had put the 18/59's and my old 1 3/4" spacers in. I was at 3.5" of lift. Drove terrible and handled like a dump truck.

Nah i just think you wont need the aev 2" BB. Try out the coils by themselves and then if you still feel you need more lift you can throw coil spacers in.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to hold off on any bb's. If it works than I got extra money for other improvements.

OK I see kjeeper you posted the rancho lift with the rebate should be about 325. I got quoted at a offroad shop around 1800 installed. NOw I know labor can be high but to me that sounds higher than Giraffe P@@@y.
